I'm on several forums but don't get a great deal of critiques. I would love for some constructive critiques that would help. Thank you!

Your son has awesome eyes. I think the only change I would make to that photo would be having him make eye contact with the camera to really liven up the image. But, being a Dad myself, I know that's far easier said than done. ;)

I think the top one could use some cropping to turn it into a portriat style shot. The 2nd one, I think you should have had more space on the left rather than the right, the last one, maybe a little more dof..maybe not. overall, nice work

I think they look great! I think the top photo needs a boost of something - not sure if it's color or sharpness - but I love every photo that you posted and I love that you posted your camera settings!

Thanks everyone! I post the settings because a different forum that I'm apart of requires it. Plus, it allows people to see a little more into what kind of light I was shooting in etc. I've learned a lot off of people's settings. I'm looking at doing some stock photography so that's why I left that top one as a landscape. I would have shot that portrait style any other time for sure. The second one does need some space in it. I could have pulled back a bit more. The frame may end up covering some of his arm and hand up..... The third, I think, could be warmed up a bit. His skin colour looks too cool.
